EP12 Rewind – Newcastle Music Scene

When English Rock Band Manfred Mann arrived on the Stockton ferry, music mad locals went wild and it was filmed here by NBN News in 1965.

Newcastle has always been, a big music town.

Silverchair started in a Merewether garage.

What happened was their first album sold more than 2 and a half million copies.

And launched them into the music stratosphere.

Golden Guitar winner Catherine Britt, caught the attention of Elton John.

The Castanet Club was a crowd favourite in the 80’s.

And of course, the Screaming Jets in the 90’s always ready to lend a hand.
